Seattle’s South Lake Union District

September 7, 2011

Relaxing on the waterfront, South Lake Union

South Lake Union is a refurbished area of Seattle.  The Amazon headquarters are located there, as well as Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  The Museum of History and Industry will move there in 2012.  My friend Carol and I explored the neighborhood recently.  It is a great spot for water recreation on a sunny day.  You can watch float planes landing and taking off, and the Center for Wooden Boats offers free public sailing on Lake Union on Sundays year round.  (You can link here for more information:

    The colorful boat photo is really nice, but I also like the reflection photos. Your eye for detail is clearly evident. This sounds like another place to get away and enjoy life.

    I love the mast reflections in the water but I think the upturned boats top it this time. I’ve never seen so many lovely coloured boats turned up to the sun, great picture. Thanks. 🙂
